Windows 7: explorer.exe crashing


21 Oct 2010   #1

explorer.exe crashing

For the past week or so, my explorer.exe has been crashing and restarting. Today it went haywire, crashing as soon as I restarted it with Task Manager. Another issue I've been having is that Firefox won't open. I have to open a file with Firefox for the browser to open. I ran hijackthis, and this is what it spat out:

You might want to uninstall what you put on, then if you really need what you had on install one by one see if you can find the problem as it maybe something you installed.

Download and install shellexview from HERE.

After installing go to View/Choose Columns. You want to have all of the Context Menu items together because you're going to start to disable them until you find the one that's causing the problem. In my case it was the NVidia menus that were causing my crashes.

Well I didn't follow the link posted above which gives the same advice. Pardon my repeating.

I just ran sfc /scannow, and it said it found things. I rebooted my computer and ran the scan again. This time it didn't find anything. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is still blocking IP addresses, 67.215.246.203, 193.107.16.156, and 222.186.12.42 are the main ones. I update it before every scan.

Ok, since my last post, the web address 222.186.12.42 has tried to open itself every two minutes. Malwarebytes is blocking it, but it's trying even when I have firefox closed. This isn't just some popup.
